John Buck is the coauthor of Company-wide Agility with Beyond Budgeting, Open Space & Sociocracy, about the approach dubbed BOSSA nova. He earlier coauthored We the People: Consenting to a Deeper Democracy, a book about sociocracy as a design system for agile organizing and running of organizations. He is president of GovernanceAlive LLC, an international consulting organization headquartered in Washington, DC, USA. He has led dozens of sociocracy/BOSSA nova implementation projects for a variety of organizations. He believes that such basic BOSSA nova values as self-organization, transparency, constant customer focus, and continuous learning can make our work places dramatically more sustainable, elegant, and profitable.
